Over 3 weeks and still no sign of my order!!

Unfortunately I have still not received my product 3 weeks after ordering. At this point in time I am not impressed with the product or the service of the company.

Hi Ellen, we are truly sorry for the delay! Your order was placed just after the black friday/cyber monday madness and this is arguably the busiest time of year for all fulfilment centres and as such your order was slightly delayed. International orders all the way to Australia can take even longer than usual in this instance. We checked the tracking and your order is showing as delivered today - once again we sincerely apologize and hope you enjoy your products! Please do not hesitate to contact us at should you have any more concerns.



This is my favourite tanning product ever! I just tried it on vacation and got a seasons worth of tan in just a week! (as a Canadian this is a Huge benefit during the winter!) The Lotion is extremely hydrating and soaks into the skin nicely without leaving behind a residue. My skin feels and looks great and it smells like banana! Would 100% recommend!

WOW... can’t wait to really dig in!

The Base Tan is truly amazing, super soft, non-greasy formula and it smells amazing! I live in Canada and it being almost winter already I have had the chance to properly use it. However from my first impressions, I absolutely would recommend! I’m pretty pale and try to avoid tanning salons, so this will be a life saver as it will for sure be packed in my suitcase for Hawaii in January.

Smells incredible!!

I can't get enough of this SCENT!! Its sucha soft fragrance but I just can't stop smelling it! Reminds me of banana candies from when I was kid.
